Education is in crisis. Our children are the most unhappy in the developed world, their teachers face higher workload than practically anywhere else. We have growing problems of cuts and a teacher recruitment and retention crisis. Our market-led school system puts finances before the well-being of pupils; our tests and exams narrow the curriculum while increasing stress; special needs education is in crisis; our inspection system punishes more than it supports; our failing accountability systems contribute to a school culture where management is intrusive and workload ever-rising.
